Sullivan’s Steakhouse to open in Detroit

Michael Symon’s Roast left a void at Detroit’s Westin Book Cadillac Hotel when it abruptly closed its doors in January of 2022 after 13 years of business. Recently, the hotel’s new owner, Oxford Capital Group, announced that national chain Sullivan’s Steakhouse has signed a lease as a first-floor tenant, with a projected opening in mid-2023. Sullivan’s Steakhouse is a classic American steakhouse brand rooted in rich tradition. Founded in 1996, the steakhouse has 13 locations across the United States and offers guests hand-cut steaks, fresh seafood and signature cocktails and a friendly, familiar atmosphere. The restaurant is famous for its monthly pairing dinners, live jazz music, wine locker and brass plaque programs. Sullivan’s menu of classic American cuisine includes appetizers such as Oysters Rockefeller topped with Nueske’s thick-cut bacon and creamed spinach; a mouthwatering array of bone-in cuts of steak are cooked to order – all of which pair perfectly with any of Sullivan’s signature cocktails such as the Knock Out Martini, inspired by the steakhouse’s namesake, boxer John Sullivan. In addition to renovating the 8,500 square foot interior space of the restaurant, a new outdoor patio space will offer a new amenity for guests to enjoy.  “Along with the hotel’s comprehensive strategic renovation and repositioning, the addition of Sullivan’s Steakhouse to The Westin Book Cadillac will further improve the overall guest experience and provide an exciting new venue in the growing downtown neighborhood,” said John W. Rutledge, founder, chairman and CEO of Oxford Capital Group, LLC and Oxford Hotels & Resorts, LLC. “We’ve long had our sights set on expanding to Michigan, and when the opportunity to open in the historic Westin Book Cadillac Building presented itself, we knew we simply had to take advantage of this unique opportunity and moment in Sullivan’s evolution and growth,” said Nishant Machado, President and Chief Executive Officer of Dividend Restaurant Group. “We look forward to being part of the Detroit community and for residents and visitors alike to have the chance to try our signature American fare.” Oxford is also in conversations with several potential tenants to fill the remaining 5,000 square feet restaurant space, previously occupied by 24Grille. Stay tuned for developments. 1114 Washington Boulevard, Westin Book Cadillac Hotel, Detroit
